  • Pivoting from the corporate world to impact-driven work
  • Conforming into inequitable systems and role, and shifting away to find her voice
  • Why we adapt as marginalized communities and how to break away from upholding inequitable systems
  • What’s in Susan’s “kitchen sink”
  • The future of work, diversifying the spaces we are a part of, and creating different forms of distributing wealth
  • Challenging existing systems of work, capitalism, and labor
  • The concept of "Space, pace, and grace" - how are we acknowledging rest as part of our work?
  • Honoring the north star of the communities around us
  • Creating more intention behind our beliefs, words, and actions
  • The importance of rest and filling our cup
